I grew up in the mountains so of course I am no stranger to snow, but it was never my favourite thing. I love the quiet stillness of standing outside while it snows. The heavy feeling when the air around you is full. I love the way snow looks. So, other than driving in it, I very much appreciate the snow when it happens in Victoria because it is beautiful but still warm enough to sneak outside and enjoy.
This evening, after having spent a few hours in the snow, shoveling, sliding, walking and snowballing with my boys, I snuck outside in the last few moments of light and snapped a few photos around my house.
